An Interview with Tiger Scholar, Mr. Amari Leath:
How did you get into photography? Throughout his upbringing Mr. Leath found joy in photography and enjoyed playing with cameras. According to Mr. Leath, “Since I was young, I always liked to play with cameras. My mom was a photographer and she had a film camera that I would always take and look through the viewfinder.” However, it was not until the summer of 2017 that he discovered his passion for being a photographer. While on a family vacation, he became the family photographer and captured the experience with his Kodak Easy Camera. Mr. Leath states, “ I switched the camera into manual mode and I feel in love with how I could control how the images looked. I never stopped after that.”
